About the Author
Sheila M. Averbuch is a former tech journalist who's interviewed billionaires, hackers, and would-be Mars colonists. She writes fiction for middle grade and is bewitched by and suspicious of technology in equal measure. Sheila cofounded the Scotland network of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and was first winner of The Hook, SCBWI's national live pitching competition in the UK. She's a 2019 awardee of the Scottish Book Trust's New Writers Award and has read her work at the Portobello Book Festival and Listen Softly. Originally from Massachusetts, Sheila did a degree in history and literature at Harvard and a journalism MA at Stanford before moving to Ireland, where she covered the Northern Ireland Troubles for USA Today and set up Ireland's first IT news service. She's founder of the content agency ENNclick and lives today with her family in Scotland, outside Edinburgh.
Friend Me is a heart-racing escalation from toxic teen power play and the dangers of social media to a darkly searing near-future thriller. A stunning debut. -- Elizabeth Wein, New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity
A stunning, suspenseful look at the very real impact on tweens when the inexorable march toward more technology goes haywire. It's like Mean Girls meets Black Mirror with very scary results. -- Sarah Darer Littman, author of Backlash
Fast paced, original, and gripping! This book has twists and turns and a sci-fi edge, yet it still keeps an important question at its heart: What makes a true friend? -- Lisa Thompson, author of The Goldfish Boy
